[PRICE MISMATCHED!] - Rest API Companion vs IG Web Platform


insignificant

Question

Hi IG Support,

I'm currently developing a monitoring tools for the price using REST API. 

I have couple of questions that really confused me in constructing the formula/algorithm:

  1. I have been comparing price in the IG Web Platform and Android Platform versus the REST API Companion. I found some inconsistencies, for example at some points in Web/Android platform to calculate the Mid HIGHEST price, the formula is as follow: ROUND_DOWN((Bid + Ask)/2); However, on the same timeframe at some points the Mid LOWEST price formula is as follow: ROUND_UP((Bid + Ask)/2). Please see my attached screenshot for more details. This brought me to a question as how to calculate the Mid value of a candle in the Web/Android Platform, let's say (Bid + Ask)/2 = 107.01235, so should it get rounded up becoming 107.013 or rounded down becoming 107.012?
  2. Issue number 1 somehow screws my Stochastic Oscillator calculation due to inconsistencies and differences in couple of N candles. Does IG have an API to call the Stoch value at some point of time?
  3. Did I calculate point 1 above incorrectly? What's the correct formula to get the accurate price at certain point? I was using the GET/prices - is that correct? Is my method correct?

Please see my screenshot for more detailed information 🙏

Thank you!

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
